Seth with chocolate kisses
May 2, 2006
Yesterday was Seth’s first birthday. I wasn’t online much, just busy soaking it all up! We had Chip’s parents over for dinner last night after Elijah’s baseball practice so he could have his birthday dinner. It took some doing, but we realized that french fries seem to be his favorite food right now. So we grilled out – burgers & brats, oven-fries and baked beans. Simple fair for a simple celebration. All was good until he decided to showoff his recently developed throwing techniques for the grandparents – using his hamburger as a projectile and his momma as a target! It was cute the first time, but the second time when I got smacked in cheek with a fistful of hamburger, not so cute!
After dinner, we had cake. We opted for a small cake from Walmart – chocolate of course. What a mess! He loved it! And he was more than willing to share it with chocolate kisses while he ate!
After cake (and a bath!), we opened presents. He had cards to open, a little hammer toy that lights up from my Gram (that he picked out) and a wagon of megablocks from Chip and I. Again, those blocks were great for throwing – AT MOMMA! Guess he’s been taking notes the past few weeks when we’ve been out in the yard playing catch with the older kids. Next year we’ll just get him a ball and glove.
Happy birthday to my big boy! (yesterday)
